Then I remembered.....I added this binder of how to sketch animals in the writing center on Friday.
I found these step by step pictures on pinterest....you can find my board here!
Now for my experiment:
I found these word cards on Pinterest as well......I printed and laminated them and put them in the writing center.
The children do not seem interested in them at the moment.....so I put them on the cover of the binder....
I hope this will encourage the children to use some of these words in their writing.
